Joseph Denver Kinyon, age 64, of Castleford, Idaho passed away on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, at home with his family after a long battle with cancer.
Joe was born March 19, 1955, in Twin Falls County to David Worth and Shirley Ann Kinyon. He grew up in Castleford on the family farm and ranch with his parents and sister. After graduating from high school, he married Colleen Hawkins on December 15, 1973. Together they had three children. They farmed and ranched and raised their family in Castleford. They were later divorced.
Together Joe and his parents worked the farm and ranch for years. After Shirley’s passing, Joe and David continued to grow the family business with his children and grandchildren. David was not only a good father to Joe, but an excellent business partner.
Joe was a very talented man with a silver tongue. He built a hell of a business and made it look easy. In addition to being a skilled cattleman, he had many other pastimes. He loved to go fishing at Roseworth and Salmon Dam, go four-wheeler riding all over southern Idaho and down into Nevada, and go hunting for anything that was in season, especially antelope. He also loved to water ski, snow ski, and oil paint. He had a garden and loved plants and flowers like his mother did. He had faith in God and always listened to Mother Nature before anything else. He will always be a cowboy.
Joe is survived by his father, David Kinyon; daughters, Stacy Kinyon (Tracy Vulgamore) of Castleford, Amy Weighall (Jim) of Buhl, and Cammy Kinyon of Buhl; grandchildren, Tanya Lanham (Rob), Tara Cornwell (Austin), Tyler Weighall, Kreagan Bower, Kennedi Weighall, and Waylon Kinyon; great-grandchildren, Dalley Lanham and Nash Lanham, and sister, Lou Ann Burkhalter (Christy).

Bethine Bates 92 passed away on Friday, Aug. 23, 2019 under the loving care of her daughter and son-in-law, Raedine and Dave Frantz, in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Beth was born at home on the family farm in Malta, Idaho on Oct. 6, 1926 to Victor and Sadie Scott. She was the youngest of four daughters and attended schools in the Malta area. With the loss of the family cattle ranch during the depression Vic and Sadie relocated their family to Twin Falls. Beth remained a resident of Twin Falls for the remainder of her life. In 1947, while working at the Peter Pan Soda Shop on Main Street, Beth met her future husband Wayne Bates. They were married in Elko, Nevada on Jan. 17, 1948. To this union were born five children, Karen Baird (Lynn), Raedine Frantz (Dave) Yvonne Iskra (Ed), Christine Rene’, and John Bates (Cheri). Beth and Wayne spent fifty-nine years together before his passing in 2007.
Beth held several jobs throughout her life but by far her most treasured accomplishment was her family. Whether fishing, camping, barbequing or summer vacations with family to Yellowstone, The Redwoods, the Oregon Coast or Washington, any time was a “Special Time” when family was near. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the benefactors of Beth’s longevity. They were fortunate to know her, learn from her, and will carry the memory of her for the rest of their lives.
Mom was a wonderful caregiver for her mother for six and a half years, and then her husband for seventeen years until his passing in 2007.
Beth loved gardening and cared religiously for her roses, iris, gladiolus and lily’s. In her later life when she was no longer physically able to care for her garden, she enjoyed creating her own garden in the hundreds of coloring books she completed. As time progressed she found solace in watching the birds and squirrels from her breakfast table, reading novels and doing word search puzzles.
Mom’s final years were filled with “spunk and sass.” Perhaps this gave her the energy and drive to watch seasons of Spurs basketball, Boise State Football and NASCAR racing. Without fail weekday afternoons were spent watching the Game Show Network and yes, mom could answer some questions! Quiet evenings were spent in her recliner enjoying any show about Alaska or Mountain men, always with a “Creamie” for dessert. She relished her weekly phone calls from her children.
Beth was predeceased by her parents Victor and Sadie Scott, her husband Wayne Bates, a granddaughter Danielle Bates, a great-granddaughter Makennah Anderson and all of her siblings: Theda Scott, Bessie Powers and Lona Meyers.
She is survived by all her children, twelve grandchildren, twenty-six great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren.
A memorial service for Beth will be held at Parkes Magic Valley Funeral Home, in Twin Falls, Idaho at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. A reception with lunch will follow immediately after the service. Private Inurnment at Twin Falls Cemetery will take place at a later date.

Charles Edward “Ed” Gardner, 93, a resident of Gooding, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019.
Ed was born Jan. 17, 1926 near Gordon Nebraska, the fourth of nine children born to William Edward Gardner and Grace Helen Parks.
Ed spent his early years on the family farm in Cherry County Nebraska working the farm and helping to raise his younger brothers. He enlisted in the Army in 1945 and served in Korea until his honorable discharge. In 1953 Ed began his thirty-year career as an automotive mechanic for the Civil Service. He began in Igloo, S. Dakota and relocated to Sierra Army depot in Herlong, California in where he worked until his retirement, receiving many accommodations along the way.
In May of 1959 he married Georgia Ann Gleek (Gray) in Edgemont S. Dakota and together had three children. Charles William (Chuck) Gardner of Gooding, Larry Eugene Gardner of Hailey and Kathrine Grace Peterson of Arco.
In September of 1973 he married his soulmate and best friend—Mary Jean Bratcher. Together they began their life together, enjoying gardening, fishing, and traveling to see family and old friends. In 1981 they moved to the farm north of Shoshone to be closer to Ed’s brothers who lived in the area. They were joined on the farm in 1985 by Ed’s younger brother—Jerry and his wife—Marilyn. Sadly, Mary passed away in January of 1993.
In 2003 Ed sold the farm and moved to his home in Gooding, continuing his love of gardening and sharing the bounty of the garden with anyone he could. He also continued his long affiliation with the Gooding Senior Center. If Ed wasn’t at home you could probably find him at the Center cooking, helping with odd jobs, playing pool, shuffleboard, and cards, or just visiting. He never missed the Saturday breakfast.
Throughout his life one word that would describe Ed was “GIVING”. Be it his time, skills, or the bounty of his garden. He would always be there for anyone he knew with anything he had.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, 2019 at Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel with Pastor Roger Johnson officiating. Services conclude at the chapel.

He felt compelled to leave college to go home to help care for his sisters. They have always been appreciative of his thoughtfulness and kindness. Although he came home early from college, that did not deter him from learning and educating himself to become successful in his career.

He went to work for the Idaho Transportation Department in Shoshone and worked as a construction engineer and retired after 35 years at the age of 55.

He and Merle Swain started Swain Root surveying, then he began Root Surveying until it became All Points Land Surveying. He mentored many young people that have become licensed land surveyors and engineers themselves. He was always proud of their accomplishments.
Surveying was his passion and hobby until the end. When we told him he needed to retire and go where it was warmer, he told us he to leave him alone because he was doing what he wanted to do.
He enjoyed playing softball and outlaw basketball for many years. He had many stories to tell and many lasting friendships from the many years playing ball.
He loved to hunt, fish and play golf with his family and friends .

Joan Marlyn Sargent passed away Sept. 4, 2019 at her home north of Kimberly. She was born in Ainsworth, Nebraska on March 18, 1937 to parents Charles (Chuck) and Eunice Patterson, also from Nebraska. She and her three brothers, John, Bob and Lyle and parents moved to Burley, Idaho in August 1949. She graduated from Burley High School in 1955.
Joan met the love of her life, William (Bill) Sargent while in high school through the Methodist Church’s Youth Fellowship group they attended together. The two were married April 22, 1956 and enjoyed 63 years together.
Joan and Bill had a farm east of Murtaugh, in the Milner area, where they raised three children, Raymond (Ray), born in 1957; Carol, born in 1958; and Steven (Steve), born in 1959. Joan had her hands full raising three children, helping on the farm, raising a garden, canning and freezing fruit and vegetables, and sewing clothes for the family.
Joan had a deep Christian faith, evidenced by the way she raised her children and her activities in the Murtaugh Methodist Church where she taught classes while her children were growing up. After the Murtaugh church was combined with the Kimberly Methodist Church, she continued to be active. When her church built the Crossroads United Methodist Church on north Main Street in Kimberly, Joan served on the building committee. After the church was completed, she painted faux stained-glass inserts for the chapel’s south windows.
Shortly after Joan married, her in-laws, Estle and Mabel Sargent, gave her a painting set. Although Estle, who was an artist trained at the Kansas City Art Institute, helped her get started, Joan was mostly self-taught. Starting with oils, she learned to use a wide variety of mediums including acrylics, watercolors, colored pens, and black and white scratchboard. She was very accomplished, and a long-time member of the Magic Valley Art Guild. Joan served as superintendent of the art building at the Twin Falls County Fair for many years. Her latest showing was with the Art and Soul competition last May, where her work was awarded third place in her category. Last year her entry placed first in its category.
Once Joan and Bill’s children were grown, they started square dancing every week, and danced for 35 years, making wonderful friends in several states.
In retirement, Joan taught herself to use a computer because she didn’t want to be left behind by the rest of the world. She learned to do bookkeeping, layout and design (often incorporating her artwork), word processing and spreadsheets. She scanned all her photos and put them in CD albums. She also wrote and produced a cookbook full of rhubarb recipes, with proceeds donated to her church. She was asked to illustrate another cookbook of recipes from local women published several years ago.
Joan is preceded in death by her parents and son, Raymond.
She is survived by her husband, Bill; son, Steve (and wife, Linda), of Logan, Utah; her daughter, Carol Huether (and husband, Randy) of Kimberly; brothers John Patterson (and wife, Judy) of Kimberly, Robert (Bob) Patterson (and wife, Diana) of Wenatchee, WA, and Lyle Patterson of Pahrump, NV; 7 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 at Crossroads United Methodist Church in Kimberly. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the church and designated for their stained-glass project.
AuDeane King passed away peacefully on Aug. 3, 2019 at the Canyons Senior Living Center in Twin Falls, Idaho. She was 81 years old.
AuDeane was the daughter of Zeke and Nina Watkins. She was born Oct. 19, 1937 in Conda, Caribou, Idaho. Her family moved to Twin Falls, where she attended public schools. AuDeane was a good student, received good grades and was active in school clubs, cheerleading, pep club and band.
She met her future husband, Jo King, in high school band class; she played the saxophone and he played the clarinet. She graduated from Twin Falls High School and married her high school sweetheart, Julian Fairman (Jo) King in Twin Falls, Idaho on Sept. 3, 1956.
AuDeane and Jo moved to Pocatello, Idaho and attended Idaho State University. AuDeane and Jo’s first child, Kathy Jo, was born in 1958 and AuDeane chose to be a stay at home mother. Three years later in 1961 they welcomed Julie Ann, a second daughter, into their Pocatello home. After college graduation AuDeane and Jo moved back to Twin Falls and welcomed two more daughters into their family, Kelley Rae in 1965 and Jamie Lynn in 1968. AuDeane wanted sons but often said her four daughters were her greatest accomplishment!
AuDeane also had other accomplishments: She learned to sew and made some of her children’s clothing and many of their costumes. She was a great golfer. She was good at Bridge. She was a wonderful cook and prepared delicious home-cooked meals for her family. She took piano lessons until she was able to play classical music. She loved to read all types of literature, and she was politically self-educated. She was savvy with social media, more than most people her age! She was artistically talented and learned how to Tole paint, use watercolors and paint with oils. Many of her paintings have been given away as future heirlooms. She was also known for creating personalized gifts for friends, extended family members, children and especially gifts for grandchildren! She wrote Jo’s personal history, used photos he took and created a beautiful book in his memory. A few years later she wrote her own history, created a similar book and gifted it to her daughters. She encouraged her daughters to develop their talents, and she provided them with many opportunities, which had been unavailable to her.
She is survived by the following family members: Kathy (Randy) Hansen, Julie (Joel) Harris, Kelley (Fred) Marler, Jamie (Steve) Naegele, 13 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, one second great-grandchild and her two sisters, Arleane Merrick and Connie Montgomery.
Several years after Jo passed away AuDeane married Jack Cox. AuDeane had the opportunity to share her life with two men who loved her dearly, and both of them showed their adoration by their devoted attention to her. Both husbands preceded her in death as well as her parents, Zeke and Nina Watkins.
The family extends and expresses gratitude for the wonderful care AuDeane received from the staff at Canyons/Serenity Senior Center and the Hospice Visions group.
A memorial service for AuDeane will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at the White Mortuary 136 4th Ave. E. in Twin Falls
Frank Eusebio Astorquia, age 77, of Gooding, Idaho passed away Tuesday night Sept. 3, 2019 after a series of illnesses that he believed surmountable as he had defied many setbacks – he believed anything could be fixed.
Born Nov. 4, 1941 in Gooding, Idaho, Frank was the only son among seven sisters to the late Eusebio Astorquia and Josephine (Ensunsa) Astorquia. Adding to this uniqueness, Frank was also a twin to sister Joanie.
Raised west of Gooding on the family ranch rich in Basque tradition and language, his father taught him livestock and farming and his mother taught him great food and incredible bread. And Frank made sure his sisters knew he was their number one priority.
A few years after graduating from high school, Frank married Carman Maestas, his high school sweetheart. Frank and Carman had three children.
Working the family ranch and farm west of town was Dad’s life work. With an unwavering work ethic, Dad carried on the family legacy of raising sheep and cattle and farming and made little time for hobbies or being idle.
Dad loved farming and building and spent most of his time fabricating or revamping equipment. There was never a piece of equipment that could not be fixed or improved. Dad would rather do something himself and have it done right. A project would not start unless it was going to be right and you did not leave it until it was right.
Born from necessity or pure ingenuity, his custom hotrod, sheep watering truck, modified corn header, weight-automated silage door and custom lawn mower among many others are topics of discussion to this day. Dad found rare time over a few Sundays to build a great playhouse for us, which still stands today.
Frank was a loyal friend to many. Witty and generous, yet a thorough judge of character, you best be ready for a nickname and a good tease. Many of Dad’s fondest memories are of meals at the big table at the ranch with the hired men and family. Quiet and authentic, Dad enjoyed telling stories of his past, laughing and enjoying good food. Dad became a good cook in his own right and spent hours perfecting Grandma’s bread.
Dad was proud he passed along that same Astorquia work ethic, ingenuity, wit and judge of character to his children.
Frank is survived by his son—Justin (Judd) and his wife, Lisa (Sabala) of Gooding, Idaho and her daughters Taylor, Erika and Alyssa (Anthony); daughter—Stephanie and Chuck Nicholson of Boise, Idaho; and daughter—Jennifer, her husband Michael Lauber and their two children, Olivia and Logan, of Boise, Idaho. Frank was particularly proud of his grandchildren.
Frank is also survived by seven sisters: Rita (Zabala), Annie Lou (Stevens), Connie (Pratt), Lucy (Osborne), twin sister Joanie (Teehan), Susan (Childs) and Patty (Raynor) as well as many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. Frank was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Georgia and Agnes.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019 at the Gooding Basque Center at 285 Euskadi Lane, Gooding, Idaho. A private interment will follow at the Elmwood Cemetery in Gooding.
Funeral and cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Condolences, memories and photos can be shared with the family by following the obituary link at www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

He was later Honorably discharged in April, 1960 and returned home to his family in Burley, ID.
Gary spent the majority of his career working in the welding and sheet metal fabrication industry, primarily as an Independent Contractor working at Miller Construction, but also working for Wes’s Welding and Shockey Sheet Metal.
Gary had a life-long love of the outdoors, spending time leading Cub Scouts and taking his family fishing and exploring southern Idaho’s caves, City of Rocks, Snake River Valley, and other places throughout the Northwest. Along with his wife he also had a lifelong crossword puzzle habit, loved metal working, and was rarely seen without a cup of coffee in his hand. By far his favorite activity was spending time with his boys who he cherished, and with his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Gary was a fiercely loyal family man, loved to laugh and was the best husband, father, son and brother we could have asked for. He had a full life and will be greatly missed.

Zelma Lee Oldham was born May 17, 1939; the fourth of eight children born to Casper Earl Lee and Alverna Kristine Christensen Lee. She was born in her family home in Heyburn, Idaho.
As a young girl, Zelma loved to play in the water and in the mud around her family farm. Her brothers and sister also say she disliked wearing shoes. Whether inside or out, she loved the feeling the texture of the ground, or the smoothness of a clean floor under her feet. She could easily chase after her family running barefooted over the rock-strewn roads.
As the family grew, so did the garden which was planted and fed her entire family. All the children were asked to help plant, weed, and harvest the garden. Zelma could plant with fervor, weed quickly, and could create the most beautiful bottles of veggies and fruits. Many people were gardeners in those times, but Zelma did more than just work; she shared the proceeds of that work with others— especially with her family.
Everyone has talked of her delicious canning, her love filled candies, and her thoughtfully shared homemade chicken noodle soup.
Zelma went to elementary school in Heyburn. She would have graduated from there, but consolidation required the closure of Heyburn High School after her sophomore year. The last two years she attended the “new” Minico High School, graduating in 1957.
After her two years at Minico, Zelma went to Twin Falls Business College, successfully completing school. She then went to work at the M.H. King Company in their main office in Burley. “Greener pastures” called her and she moved to the big city of Sacramento, California. She lived in Sacramento for eight years where she was employed by Raley’s Supermarket and Drug. While living in Sacramento area, she met and married her husband Ronald Oldham in 1967. They sealed that marriage in the Oakland Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints in 1968. Ron and Zelma relocated back to Idaho where she worked for Ore-Ida Foods— later called McCain Foods— for the remainder of her professional working career, retiring in 1999.
Since retirement, both Zelma and Ron have enjoyed the home they built together. Until the spring and summer of this year Zelma continued gardening, yard work, and canning. During retirement, she also did volunteer work at Park View Rehab Center working in the snack bar. She also loved being an integral part of the Heyburn High School alumni board, appreciating the yearly visits with friends from her past.
Over the years Zelma has faced, with courage, a number of medical challenges that could have taken her life, or worse, her spirit. As family has tried to support her, she has turned the tables and been the one to encourage all of those around her.
Zelma has always been an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her service included working in the Relief Society, Young Women’s Program, and the Primary.
Zelma is survived by her husband Ronald Weldon Oldham; her step children, Debra Nelson (Tom) of Oregon, and Thomas Oldham (Maria) of California; three step grandchildren; her sister Mary Etta (Richard) Wright of Nampa, Idaho; her brothers Stanley of Sacramento, California, Donald (Irene) of Burley, Idaho, LaVere (Susan) of Twin Falls, Idaho, and Dale (Phyllis)of Layton, Utah; and 20 nieces and nephews whom she considered to be her children.
Preceding her in death are her parents, one sister Ramona Okelberry and her husband Donald, her brother Darrell Lee, and a sister-in-law Joanne Lee.
The family would like to thank Dr. Joseph Ippolito, the nursing staff at St. Luke’s Magic Valley Regional Medical facility, and especially the staff at Serenity Rehabilitation Services for their kindness, support, and thoughtful care.
Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 at the Heyburn Ward Chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 300 South 500 West in Heyburn. A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019 at the Morrison Payne Funeral Home, 321 East Main Street in Burley and for one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will take place in the Riverside Cemetery in Heyburn immediately following the funeral service.

Bob considered an Alaskan fishing trip taken with his sons and son-in-law as one of his most cherished memories. Bob was known for his sense of humor and his ability to make people feel special. He was a compassionate, kind and caring man. Even as he calmly faced his final days, with his children and his grandchildren gathered around him, he made each one feel special and loved and left them all with treasured final moments.
